There are people around here who run around telling people how they aren't Christian.

They say supporting Trump is unChristian.

If Christians had followed the kind of advice these people push, Christianity would have been run over by Muslim's if not through Spain then through Greece and there would be no Christianity. See how the Christian Middle East and North Africa no longer exist. They were enslaved to Islam.

Well, Christians don't profess to be Christ. They do their best at being Christians and they don't often self-emoliate for the whims of those foolish people who think they can talk them into doing so.

Leftists try to push socialism by insisting Christ was a socialist. When they say a Christian isn't a "real" Christian, they mean he isn't a socialist. They go so far as to take Bible verses they don't understand out of context and use those to try to bolster their claims, while ignoring all the verses that prove Jesus was a full blown capitalist.

Anybody but Trump!

Which bible verses are you referencing, just curious?

I'd be happy to. They like to use the story of the Good Samaritan to say Jesus was advocating government run healthcare. The story isn't about health care at all. It's really about racism and who our neighbors are.

I expect these same people believe abortion is a crime, and want to restore prayer in schools? Or are they fakes and hypocrites as well?

It is about a Samaritan, a type of Jew at the time, who showed the compassion others, likely devout in the public eye Jews, didn't. It is about how all can live up to the requisite compassion God seeks. To see that capacity it in others such that gentiles too could become Jewish/Christian. I think?

He attacked a legal business with whips and scourges.

Christian opposition to prayer in public schools goes all the way back to Roman times, and is based on Jesus’s commands, “render unto Caesar the things that belong to Caesar” and “when you pray, don’t pray in public as the hypocrites do”

That is total nonsense.

Can you imagine Christ (say circa 25 A.D.) telling the teachers in Israel not to have their pupils pray? That they should render unto Caesar and not pray in public on that basis? Nice laugh, thanks.

Discernment is applied to all. It is a shame the left drove out God from the society. Your appeal has less pull. You have shot yourselves in the foot.
The same way the “left” drove “phlogiston” from the society. It’s called growing up as a species.

Samaritans are the guardians of the religion of the Bible’s King Jeroboam of Israel. The priests are from the tribe of the Kohathites, who, like the Aaronite priests that dominated the cult in Jerusalem (Kingdom of Judah) are Levites ... probably part of a group of Egyptian rebels or secessionists whose monotheistic zeal may have reflected the reforms of Akhenaten and the resistance to reimposition of polytheism conducted by Nefertiti. But before the days of the kings, the Fertile Crescent was religiously pluralist of necessity, since the world of shifting tribal alliances cut across the fuzzy religious borders that separated worship in one city from worship in another. When Shechem (Nablus, the center of Samaritan worship) became Jeroboam’s capital, its version of the Levite worship contained the local mix of customs resembling those of the Egyptians, Canaanites, Phoenicians, Minoans, and Philistines. After the northern kingdom was conquered by the Assyrians, the priesthood remained behind and became allied with the newly arrived Babylonians deported from Babylonia by the Assyrians and bringing their own customs with them. They have the right of return as Jews under Israeli law, but are not considered Jews by Orthodox, Conservative, or Reform Jews.


Samaritans are still around, mostly in the West Bank. They have their own version of the Torah which is slightly different from the Hebrew version. There were many of them until many were killed in persecutions by Caesar Justinian of Byzantium and Saladin of the Ayyubids. They generally have friendly relations with both Jews and Palestinians as has been the case for centuries.

But they were reviled in Jesus’s time. After the deportations, Babylon later conquered Assyria and made Nablus a local ally. When Cyrus the Great conquered Babylon, Nablus sided with the Babylonians while Jerusalem welcomed Persia as liberators. The Samaritans desecrated the altar in Jerusalem by burning human bones on it in the belief this would make sacrifices in the temple inefficacious. When Jesus talks about the Samaritan being his neighbor, it is a rebuke to all those who say, “How can you love the MONSTERS who did this thing?”

The teachers in Israel taught in a parochial school, not a public school.
